compostable faqs

Are your compostable films FDA compliant?

Yes, all of our compostable films are FDA compliant for direct food contact.

Biodegradable vs compostable, what’s the difference?

Compostable products require a certain type of environment in order to break down into non-toxic components, which is done with the help of heat, water, oxygen and microorganisms. Compostable products are great for the environment because they nourish the soil that they return to. Biodegradable items also break down naturally, but can leave harmful residue/metals behind in the process. Compostable packaging is biodegradable; however, not all biodegradable items are compostable.

Do your compostable films perform as well as your regular films?

Great question, and the answer is YES. Our compostable films are designed to protect your product from environmental factors, while extending shelf life, and still maintaining shelf appeal. You can rest assured that with compostable packaging, you will still be able to compete with brands using regular packaging.

What are the compostable pouch dimensions?

We can create custom-sized compostable stand up pouches and lay flat pouches. Additionally, we can provide you with our standard sized products if you’re unsure of where to begin.

What are some of the compostable pouch features?

The majority of our compostable packaging is customizable to include any of the following:

  • High vapor barriers that block moisture, oxygen, and aroma from entering or exiting the package
  • Different hang hole options
    • Round
  • Clouded windows
  • Glossy finishes
  • Tear notches
  • Press-to-close zippers
  • Available in a wide range of sizes
  • Pouch bottom / gusset options including K-Seal, Plow Bottom, 3 side Seal (3SS).

We strive to provide solutions for each person. For custom requests, please contact our team or by calling us at 844-623-8603

What other sustainable packaging does ePac offer?
